I'm looking for another word/description that describes the part of yourself that feels like the core to your soul. The part of yourself that speaks your sincere truth. Other examples (or similar to) that already exist are:
-Self concept -Self Principal
I need to use this description to describe the difference between when you are speaking from a place of external influence (expectations, social pressures) and the place that you sincerely connect with (core truth/self).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much
